As the Hudson Valley taps into the canned cocktails scene, distilleries and wineries from Albany to Beacon and beyond are bottling up beverages to sell commercially to spirits-lovers everywhere. From classic cocktails to specialty mixes, these four finds are worth savoring a sip from the comfort of your backyard this summer (and all year).
This increasingly popular combination of premium tequila, real lime juice, and sparkling water makes for a great low-calorie beverage that’s simple but so good. No sugar is added to this version by Current Spirits, so you know you’re just getting the good stuff.
Liquid Fables invented this canned cocktail to remind you not to rush through life and to enjoy sips at your own pace, just like the hare in the classic tale. A refreshing mix of vodka, lemon, and mint keep this drink zesty, and you can keep it cool by pouring over ice.
You’ve heard of an Arnold Palmer (half lemonade and half iced tea), but have you heard of a Knickerbocker? Albany Distilling coined this cocktail phrase to put a New York twist on the classic half-and-half cocktail, mixing vodka, green and black teas, and tropical citrus flavor so you can “kick back with the Knick.”
A 2022 addition to Wild Arc Farm’s canned wine cooler lineup, Concord! is made with – you guessed it – certified organic Concord grapes to bring back fond memories of your favorite childhood grape soda, just with less sugar and more alcohol.
